At this time of year, we want to take a moment to celebrate the wonderful year we have had in 2022. Reflecting back it has been a brilliant year, both on and off the field for the club, and we would like to thank you for all the ways you make our club what it is. It is safe to say that we are more than a soccer club and that we have become a fantastic, inclusive, and amazing Soccer Community. PMSC is a first-class place for players to develop through long-term player development, have fun, make friends, enjoy all the benefits of healthy living that participating in a sport brings, and excel regardless of the age or level they play at.
